what speed feels comfortable for you is best. anything from 12 m/hr up to 17 m/hr. It will depend on your weight and size of trick ski, just get up on it first then find what your comfortable cruising at. Remember to shorten the rope to about the 12 or 13 meter length. Cheers.

i think I trick ski around 18mph, so it may be a touch faster. you don't want to go too fast at first though cos it's really easy to catch an edge. as dee said, pick a speed that feels comfortable. will depend on your boat too I guess.
let us know how you go!
